Jonathan H Poznansky
I used the services of the Law Office of Jonathan H. Poznansky. I mainly dealt with Christopher Moterosso and Peter G. Malloy. Peter and Chris were extremely pleasant to deal with and their level of professionalism is that beyond words! Christopher Moterosso represented me in a Worker's Compensation case. I was not expecting anything; I was just hoping to get the case over with. To my surprise, not only was the case over with, but he managed to get me a decent amount. The exceptional thing about these attorneys (and the Law office of Jonathan Poznansky) is that from the moment you walk in, they demonstrate that they care. Christopher Moterosso and Peter G. Malloy demonstrated a high level of excellency! I HIGHLY recommend these attorneys.

Daniel J Byrnes Attorney
I have a property line issue. I went to Daniel’s office to get information on what my rights are and how to proceed with getting the issue resolved. He was very patient and provided me with a path to go down that will hopefully remove my concerns. He took the time to explain the terminology used as well to answer each of my questions until I was satisfied. This was my first experience in dealing with a lawyer and it was definitely a good one. Coming away from this meeting I felt that I had someone who I could trust and rely on to get the right answers and issues resolved. He explained what the standard process was and was upfront about the potential costs involved.

I contacted Daniel because my very good friend recommended him to me. Thanks to Daniel, I live in a really nice house now! Finally my own house! Not only he helped me with all the papers, but his team explained me everything about the tax advantages I didn't even know about. Thanks Daniel, and keep up the great work! Excellent service, fast and Daniel is just a nice person to make business with!

I STRONGLY RECOMMEND this attorney and wonder if the lower ratings are from people who were on the other side of her case that she beat in court and now look to get even with her by using the rating system as a bashing forum... Do yourself a favor and read the GOOD RATINGS and see what those of US have to say! She is a highly skilled Lawyer who will defend her clients with a no-nonsense approach! She Is well-prepared in Court and does NOT drag out the case and will NOT tell you lies or mis-lead you in any way even if it is something you prefer not hearing! As for her fees, they are reasonable and for those who have complained, DON'T YOU want to get paid for the work YOU do? BE SMART AND BELIEVE THE GOOD RATINGS... HIRE HER BEFORE YOUR OPPONENT DOES!!!! You don't want to be on the other side of the table!!! Don't say I didn't GIVE YOU THE HEADS UP!!! DON'T HESITATE...SHE IS THE BEST!!!

Byrnes is truly an excellent lawyer. He’s settled my parents’ estate, so that no small detail was under the radar. He helped me and my family settle our house contract so when it comes time for my parents to retire, our house will still be under our family name and kept us informed along every step of the way. I highly recommend Byrnes as a real estate lawyer.

Daniel is really on the ball when it comes to real estate ! He knows the in's and out's of real estate law and was extremely helpful when it came to navigating tricky waters with the seller of my dream home. His staff is pleasant and courteous and Dan himself immediately answered whenever I had any questions about the purchase.

In spite of the negative reviews, I used here because my "trusted" Real Estate attorney suggested i should that she is a "killer"Had a great consult with her, seemed very attentive, asked all the right questions, seemed professional! Yes even charged for the consult.My ex and I had used a mediator, so we had no disputes, everything was agreeable, which annoyed Ms Aplin, meaning her billable hours would be limited. Well somehow she was able to "create" enough billable hours that she charged me over $7,000 for the most simple divorce.I should have hired an attorney to investigate her billing pratice, because I know for a fact there was no way she put in XXXX hours to finalize my documents and divorce. If that was not enough, She was a 1 woman show. you couldn't get her on the phone even you tried. her receptionist was too busy (changing her baby diapers in the office) to be helpful, and even when the divorce was final, I called needing a copy of the divorce decree, they told me to go to City Hall to get it, that they don't send copies! This was the most rude "team" 2 woman show I ever met in my life.. STAY AWAY!
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
